    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity if you want it, friendly environments, recently overhauled board of directors, good investment in business improvement programs

    Cons

    Uncompetitive salaries, sometimes too much going on for the business to cope with, quite a high proportion of dead wood hanging around in the company

    Advice to Management

    Review some of the old school employees

    I have been working at Smiths Detection full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a real mission helping to make the world a safer place.
    Strong technology and some great products.
    Great people with real commitment to the company in junior and middle management

    Cons

    Senior management has lost touch with the company.
    More and more initiatives but nothing ever really changes.
    They keep shouting at us to do better but never tell us how.
    The old GM&ER guys are getting rid of the S&I guys and losing a lot of experience in the process.
    They've tried bringing some new people in but the ones that seem to be any good leave when they realise what they are up against; the worst ones just play games.
    Development and advancement have gone out of the window - pay rises have been tiny.
    Our competitors seem to be doing much better than we are at the moment with some really big wins.

    Advice to Management

    Please start listening to staff and stop treating us like idiots - we can tell when you are making things up!
    You have told us about your new strategy - actually implementing it would help.
